Iran’s Foreign Ministry Spokesman Seyyed Abbas Mousavi has slammed a statement by a spokesperson for the German Federal Foreign Office in support of Israel.
“The Islamic Republic of Iran believes de-escalation of tension in the region is only possible through serious fight of all parties against the destructive, interventionist and inhumane acts of the Zionist regime,” Mousavi said on Wednesday.
He also called on Germany to take into account the realities of the region, and stop its support for the devastating crimes of the Zionist regime in Palestine, Lebanon and Syria.
This way, Berlin would be able to address the high expectations about its effective and constructive role in establishing lasting peace and stability in the region, he added.
Mousavi highlighted the Islamic Republic of Iran’s support for the oppressed nations of the region, including the Palestinian people, saying that it is the humanitarian and Islamic commitment of Iran that has to be continued.
Earlier, in a statement, the German Foreign Ministry spokesperson underscored Berlin’s support for the Israeli regime and in an interventionist statement called on Tehran to remain committed to maintaining peaceful relations with the countries of the region and taking practical steps to ease tensions.
The German Federal Foreign Office said the statement was a reaction to earlier comments by Commander-in-Chief of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) Major General Hossein Salami.
